New Boy Scouts District Executive Wesley Brown

Wesley Brown is the newest Creek River District Executive at Boy Scouts of America.

The Georgia-Carolina Council recently welcomed Wesley Brown as the new district executive for its Creek River District, which serves Richmond, Burke, Emanuel, Jefferson and Jenkins counties.
Wesley, a native of Atlanta, earned Eagle Scout honors in October 2002 at the age of 16 while a member of Troop 1776 in Marietta, Ga. During his time with the troop, which serves more than 100 scouts, he served as senior patrol leader, was inducted into the Order of the Arrow and had the privilege of attending all three High-Adventure trips (Northern Tier, Philmont and Florida Sea Base). The son of an Eagle Scout, Wesley was awarded a bronze palm before leaving the troop.
Wesley comes to Georgia-Carolina Council after seven years as an award-winning journalist. He reported on a wide range of topics, from crime and courts, to local and federal government, as a member of one weekly and three daily newspapers in North Carolina and Georgia, including The Augusta Chronicle. During his time as a reporter, he won nine awards, including first place in 2015 for hard news writing in the Georgia Press Association’s Better Newspaper Contest.
With a Bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Georgia College & State University and a passion for the Scouts and helping young people, Wesley joins the council in hopes of acquiring new skills in fundraising, volunteer recruitment and nonprofit programming.
He married the love of his life, Jessica, an Augusta native, in April 2012 and the couple is expecting their first child in March. He lives in Augusta and during his spare time enjoys billiards, canoeing, camping, watching Auburn University football and spending time with his two dogs, Brandy and Lina.
He may be reached at the council service center in Augusta at 706-733-5277 or you can follow him @SocialSalutes on Twitter to learn the latest happenings and achievements in the Creek River District.
